1Deliver me from mine enemies , O my God:defend me from them that rise up against me.
2Deliver me from the workers of iniquity, and save me from bloodymen.3
For, lo, they lie in wait for my soul: the mighty are gathered against me; not for my transgression, nor for my sin, O LORD.4
They run and prepare themselves without my fault:awake to helpa me, and behold .
Thou therefore, O LORDGod of hosts, the God of Israel,awake to visit all the heathen: be not merciful to any wickedtransgressors . Selah.6
They return at evening: they make a noise like a dog, and go round about the city.7
Behold, they belch out with their mouth:swords are in their lips: for who, say they, doth hear ?
But thou, O LORD, shalt laugh at them; thou shalt have all the heathen in derision .
Because of his strength will I wait upon thee: for God is my defence.b10
The God of my mercy shall prevent me: God shall let me see my desire upon mine enemies .c11Slay them not, lest my peopleforget : scatter them by thy power; and bring them down , O Lord our shield.12
For the sin of their mouth and the words of their lips let them even be taken in their pride: and for cursing and lying which they speak .
13Consume them in wrath,consume them, that they may not be: and let them know that Godruleth in Jacob unto the ends of the earth.Selah.14
And at evening let them return ; and let them make a noise like a dog, and go round about the city.15
Let them wander up and down for meat ,d and grudge if they be not satisfied .
But I will sing of thy power; yea, I will sing aloud of thy mercy in the morning: for thou hast been my defence and refuge in the day of my trouble.17
Unto thee, O my strength, will I sing : for God is my defence, and the God of my mercy.
